The Good, Bad and Ugly - Movie Review

Three mercenaries, one good, one bad and one ugly. A gold chest. They each have one piece of information and do not trust one another one bit. But they need each other, especially good (Clint Eastwood) and Ugly (Eli Wallach). Bad (Lee Van Cleef) is expendable.

The setting or backdrop is the Civil War and the three mercenaries ride from one side of the war into the other. The gold belongs to the Confederates who are losing the battle. The two (good and ugly) do their bit to help the cause and also traverse through many other social issues of the day.

The gold is found. Good wins. But he shares the booty with Ugly.

Grand spectacle. Lovely music. Powerful characters. Fabulous setting.
